(KSL News) It takes a lot to surprise a police officer. But that's exactly what our Coco Warner did with today's High 5.
Officer Tom Smart teaches a drug and alcohol prevention and anti-violence class every Friday at Woods Cross Elementary. He was nominated for a High 5 by sixth grade teacher George Danielson, who helped us surprise him.
"We'd like to recognize you for the exceptional way you have spent your time and your skills in teaching our drug and alcohol awareness and our violence prevention classes here at Woods Cross," Danielson said. "I speak for all of us here, I believe, when I say your efforts have made a big difference in the lives of the kids. Honestly, in the long run, I believe you save lives."
Officer Smart said teaching the classes is a great positive thing in his job.
